The fleet - the Swiss equivalent of Britain's Red Arrows and the USA's Blue Angels - were expected in Langenbruck, a municipality in north-western Switzerland that was the birthplace of Bider, the first aviator to cross the Alps in both directions. But it was attendees at the 31st Northwest Yodeling festival in nearby Mümliswil that instead watched the aerial acrobatics - about four miles away from the intended location.
Think twice the next time you pluck a daisy from the sidewalk, because that flower may actually be ‘screaming’ in a language you don’t understand— or at least, not yet. Today, we’re cracking the code of the fascinating world of plant sentience, a.k.a., the secret way in which everything from your Ikea houseplant to a 200-ft tall sequoia tree is communicating, feeling, even socialising.

You can now buy Martian dirt. And no this is not Sci-fi. University of Central Florida (UCF) has announced that it will be selling martian dirt for $20 per Kilogram plus shipping.
Indeed, a team of UCF astrophysicists has come up with a method for creating Martian dirt. This red soil, created by the UCF researchers, is known as “Simulant” and very closely resembles Martian dirt as its formula is based on the chemical composition of soil actually collected from Mars by the Curiosity rover. The formula has been published online and is accessible to everyone.

Satellite images and computer projections that you see on the TV news doesn't quite give you the impression of how huge this storm system is. You need a low Earth orbit perspective.

Your friend just sent you a link. Or you saw a tweet. Or a Fecesbook entry. And you just mindlessly forward or retweet or share.
One word: Don't.
Invest about 30 seconds of common sense. Here is how to do that.

A friend of mine complains bitterly about how there is no good news online. It's all doom, gloom, politics, murder, violence, and whatnot. Fortunately, she is from the UK so I found a web site that will cheer her up.

No, this wasn't an invasion of illegal aliens from south of the border. An estimated 1500 Americans ended up on Canadian shores on Sunday, Aug 21, when high winds blew rafters into foreign lands.
Fortunately, our Canadian friends had sufficient manpower to save the victims en masse.

I'm sure by now the news has gotten around the world that a giant snow storm is due to strike the northeastern United States this weekend. Between two and three feet of accumulations are forecast for Washington DC on Saturday.
The radar image of this storm seems to indicate that maybe it is best to have a gentle but firm hand when dealing with this storm.

A woman started an act of kindness chain that lasted for hours at a Starbucks drive-thru in Florida.
She ordered an iced coffee around 7 a.m. Wednesday in St. Petersburg and asked to pay for the caramel mocchiato for the stranger in the car behind her. He returned the favor. The chain kept going as employees began keeping count.
The Tampa Bay Times reports the chain finally ended around 6 p.m. when customer number 379 pulled up and ordered a regular coffee. Barista Vu Nguyen leaned out the window and explained the chain that started earlier in the day, asking if she'd like to participate. She declined, saying she only wanted to pay for her coffee.
